Worship of Yahusha is not divine worship
by Rav Sha'ul

  

Ok, among the many passages of the New Testament that presents Yahusha as being the object of "worship" is Matthew 14:33.

Matthew 14:33

33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped (bowed down before) him, saying, of a truth thou art the Son of God (they bowed down to Yahusha in the sense of respect for his superior position as son of Yahuah.  They did not worship him as Yahuah.)

Here we have a clear situation - one of many recorded in the New Testament - of Yahusha being "worshipped", yet those worshipping him did not worship him as Yahuah but as the Son of Yahuah, which to them, actually meant that they recognized him as Messiah or as an empowered, righteous agent of the Almighty God.  They were bowing down as an act of respect to authority before Yahusha and as an act of worship to Yahuah through His proxy.

Although many think the term "worship" is only applicable to "God", in fact the term relates to showing reverence even to a fellow man.  Christian teachers do not make this distinction as they are false teachers and lead us astray to believe Yahusha was worshipped.  Then these false teachers take that sound bite out of context and assume Jesus is God.  In every case bowing down to Yahusha is in the context of showing reverence to a higher authority. 

As the Strong's Lexicon points out, the Greek term is simply "used of homage shown to men and beings of superior rank".  The Greek word rendered “worship” in the NT is the Greek word proskyneō below is the Strong’s entrance for the word:

Lexicon :: Strong's G4352 – proskyneō

in the NT by kneeling or prostration to do homage (to one) or make obeisance, whether in order to express respect or to make supplication

In the 2nd Temple era when Yahusha lived; kneeling or prostration to do homage (to one) or make obeisance (which is translated as ‘worship’ in the NT), whether in order to express respect or to make supplication was a common practice.  It remains a common practice even today in the Orient in Japanese, Chinese, Muslim, and other cultures around the world.

The often referenced instances of Yahusha being “worshipped” are another example of the desperation Christians to find any shred of proof for their unsubstantiated and false doctrines.  This is another example of the biased use of "implicit" proofs by those promoting the mystery Babylon man-God or traditional Trinitarian Christianity and counterfeit Messiah Jesus Christ.  They IMPLY what is not there.

The reference, A Dictionary of Biblical Languages With Semantic Domains: Hebrew (Old Testament), by James Swanson, defines the Hebrew word often translated "worship" as - "take a stance of bowing low in an act of respect or honor, but not necessarily worship of deity" (Genesis 43:28). 

The reference in Genesis below is just such an example of the type of “worship” Yahusha accepted:

Genesis 43:28

And they answered, Thy servant our father is in good health, he is yet alive. And they (worshipped - proskyneō) bowed down their heads, and made obeisance.

This term "obeisance" is from the Hebrew equivalent of the Greek term used in the verse from Matthew proskyneō shown above, as well as most other New Testament verses where "worship" is the translation.  The proper translation should read “bowed down to” not “worshipped”.  Again we see the bias of uninspired Hellenized translators.  Matthew, as many of you already know, is now strongly assumed to have been initially written in Hebrew; however, even if it wasn't, it was still written by a Hebrew from memory of conversations in Hebrew. 

From Strong's Lexicon we determine the Hebrew term to mean:

Strong's Number 7812 shachah {shaw-khaw'} a primitive root; TWOT - 2360; v

AV - worship 99, bow 31, bow down 18, obeisance 9, reverence 5, fall down 3, themselves 2, stoop 1, crouch 1, misc 3; 172

to bow down

to bow down, prostrate oneself

before a superior man in homage

before God in worship

before false gods

before angels

Note that the term can even refer to "worship" of false gods!  Of course, this is precisely the type of worship practiced by Trinitarians and all others that promote the antichrist (replacement Messiah) deception that Jesus is God.

Obviously, the context of Genesis is not referring to worship of Yahuah.  It records Joseph's brothers bowing before him i.e. "worshipping" him (obeisance) as someone of much higher rank.  Are Trinitarians prepared to claim that everyone in Scripture that was "worshipped" is Yahuah (God)?  Since Joseph was "worshipped" do they also claim he was Yahuah?  Of course not.  We simply need to do a small amount of research into the meaning of the Greek and Hebrew words that were translated as “worship” to realize there are two types of “worship”.  Worship directed to Yahuah and worship directed to Yahusha as a superior in rank and authority as the son of Yahuah. 

Next: Did Yahusha claim to be God and commit blasphemy?
